With this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, director Michael Bay aims to reboot his own franchise with an installment that allegedly takes place in a very different world (it doesn’t seem that different, really).  Set three years after the events of Dark of the Moon, the fourth Transformers film finds the inhabitants of Earth united against any and all Transformers, blaming the action figures robots for the destruction in Chicago.  As part of a new viral campaign for the film, these Transformers: Age of Extinction propaganda posters and “Fall of Chicago” video advocate a human-only Earth and urge people to report all alien activity.  It’s a cute campaign, but I’m mainly curious to see just how far Bay has gone in resetting this franchise.

Hit the jump to check out the Transformers: Age of Extinction propaganda posters and video.  The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng, and Titus WelliverTransformers: Age of Extinction opens in 3D on June 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Transformers: Age of Extinction:

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.

    Been seeing these around for a while. SO lame, and the idea is overdone, movies like District 9 did it way better, and it works way better for a new property as opposed to a sequel in a huge franchise.

    Nice tagline, Paramount: “Transformers are Dangerous.” No shit. They’re building-sized robots stomping around all over the place. Thanks, Captain Obvious.

      And then Godzilla rises from the sea, to correct the balance of nature and send Bay’s Transformers franchise to the abyss.

    Age of extinction. So which is it? An age or extinction? You can’t have an age if you’re in extinction! ‘Transformers are dangerous’ – Who comes up with this crap?! You mean to tell me that after THREE movies it suddenly dawned on them to do this?

    Incidentally it’s an ‘age’ of ‘extinction’ until TF 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12.

    I wish this franchise would just go into extinction. And I mean actual extinction; without the age and the monotonous regurgitated nonsense.

      The ‘mass extinction’ events in Earth’s history did not cause all life to go exinct instantly. It happens over decades or even centuries, sometimes even longer. And an ‘age’ can denote a specific period of time. So, to your point, yes, you can have an ‘age of extinction’.

        OMG I’m not going to even try.

    Hey guys, I live in Chicago and I lived through all of this. This documentary will really shine some light on the recovery process and how we are rebuilding. Show some respect.

      Obamas from Chicago go whine to him, but you’ll need to get in line as Detroit is pretty screwed.

    That should be Bay’s face on the poster up there behind that banner.
